I have been working at Maxim Integrated

Pros

Positive cultural shift under way (more collaborative, communicative); extremely smart and dedicated employees; great products; renewed focus on customers; new, modern HQ campus opens in 2012

Cons

Intense work ethic; product-centric focus; rather insular and myopic (old habits?); should be very proud of its achievements and no longer remain quiet

Advice to ManagementAdvice

This is a remarkable, established company but not yet well known; continue to value new culture of collaboration and communication...and LEAD

    I worked at Maxim Integrated

    Pros

    Good business model. Initially granted ability to change, create, improve. Decent benefits and bonus program. Talented group of co-workers that would work long hours for the joy of creating quality work.

    Cons

    Drastic change in work environment over last few years. Tyrannical upper management. Lack of trust in the organization. All emphasis on negatives. Loyal employees no longer fit new organizational model.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pounding on a table during meetings is generally not a good motivational tool. Some positive reinforcement is a good thing. Take a good look at why morale is so bad at so many locations.

    I worked at Maxim Integrated

    Pros

    I Learned a lot working here. My coworkers were awesome and very friendly. They were very smart, professional, and helpful too.

    Cons

    There were no getting to know your coworkers. Working was pretty lonely for the first few weeks. There were little, if any, people ages 18-25 working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Feedback is always appreciated. The lunch was very nice for getting to know a few coworkers off the bat. Hire more people in the 18-25 range.
